Opening Day is right around the corner, which Astros pitcher will get the ball on April 1?

Are the Houston Astros done signing for this offseason?

The Houston Astros‘ offseason hasn’t gone how we had hoped, but that doesn’t mean whatsoever that it was a failure. While Spring Training workouts started this morning, the Astros will have the opportunity to move two players off their 40-man roster; those being Justin Verlander and Josh James.

Pulling back the curtain on the Astros’ prime breakout candidate

Photo by Ezra Shaw/ Despite an uneven 2020, one Astros starter looks poised to break out in 2021. The Astros’ rotation was one of 2020’s pleasant surprises for the club.

It’s time to understand the sign-stealing scandal is behind the Astros

Photo by Harry How/ 2021 will be a challenging time for the Astros, but also a new opportunity to prove how big of a heart this team has. In 2021, the Astros won’t face easy circumstances. They won’t have George Springer anymore, they’ll play without Justin Verlander in the final year of his contract, and will have Carlos Correa, Zack Greinke, and Lance McCullers Jr. playing in their walk year. But those are things every team goes through sometimes. What the Astros can’t allow themselves to worry about is the sign-stealing scandal that needs to be part of the...
